My Son’s Media Debut
My son Johnny and I were guests on “The Sports Docket” (an online radio show focused on NY sports) last night, talking about Jeremy Lin and the whole “Linsanity” thing and how inspiring he is to kids like Johnny who want to do well academically and otherwise. Johnny was the first kid to ever be a guest on the show. I had hardly anything to say since it was, well, a sports talk show. (I was invited because of the Christian Science Monitor column I had written about Linsanity and Asian American stereotypes.) But I enjoyed learning about some of the economics of professional sports, such as the influence of salary caps on ticket prices, from the other guest, Allen St. John. I am hoping that Jeremy Lin himself finds out about Johnny’s interview and invites him to a Knicks game or just over to his house sometime soon!
